Yup, that did it (after a brief struggle with the security that ended with
me waving a white flag and logging in as the local Administrator!).
Actually, I still can't connect with psql but that's another problem
(probably not Cygwin) - the postmaster is running at least.

My guess is that someone added the mode check on $PGDATA to initdb as a
simple check to help secure databases - of course on 99.99999% on *nix
systems that will work just fine!
I get the feeling that this question may well become as common as the
current 'why does my initdb hang?'...
